NewsBEAR CUB FOUND NEAR ATTAWAPISKAT SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Friday, Sep. 30th, 2016Social media is awash with comments about a polar bear cub sited near Attawapiskat recently, and whether the Polar Bear Habitat should have gotten involved in its rescue. Karen Cummings, Manager of the habitat, said her staff always stand ready to assist polar bears. However, since this particular cub showed up in a native community, she says it is up to the community’s elders to decide how best to respond. Also, says Cummings, they only learned about the cub after the matter had been resolved. Cummings says global warming drives bears southward into human-occupied territory, creating these interactions.
